Ladies and Gentlemen...

FoD this is properly crazy, but it still made me laugh. Did you take some magic mushrooms or something before making this??

For rizzle!

hello my scotish freind!!!

thanks for the reiew and i am ashemd of this song now... bleh! i dont think its funny anymore :(

maybe time for a new funny track...

Hells yeah!

Mr. WinTang,

I didn't know that you could fingerpick so well! I myself am a fingerstyle guitarist and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this. The thumb notes were very well placed, and the finger notes give a playful yet dark feel to the whole song. I particularly enjoyed how your changed your metre near the end of the song to suit your chords. Magic!

Honestly, WinTang there have been very few NG audio submissions that I have enjoyed as much as this. I'd rate you a 6 if I could, but I look forward to hearing more of this from you.

By the way, are you going Pinkpop in Landgraaf? Im a big Smashing Pumpkins fan so I might see you there :P. Keep it up big man, Ill look out for your next piece.

WinTang responds:

Wow, that was heartwarming really, I'd love to hear a fingerstyle thing out of you.

No Pinkpop for me this year, regrettably. Hope you have fun. The beer is fucking expensive and mixed with water, which has the severe side-effect of toilet intoxication.

You can still sell the tickets on E-bay though. Hehehehe.

Seriously though, thanks for the love there. I'll make sure to visit your page when I can spare some good time.

Oh shit they're coming to get me!


Nice song here, very relaxing; a gentle mood setter. I must say that I kinda like the drums they way they are, it adds a unique touch to the song. I envision laying on a tropical island beach watching a meteor shower whilst some natives bang their drums on the other side of the hill in preparation for a human sacrifice. But that's just me :P.

Keep it up mate.

No kidding!

That is pretty damn intense. Nice layering of instruments though and I enjoyed the eclectic percussion; it sounds pretty cool with the other instruments you've chosen. I can imagine this as a boss fight on some top down scrolling space arcade because it makes you want to shit your pants a wee bit. "Sharting" I think is the technical term :P.

Nice work chief.

attemptedperfection responds:

hmm... now I'm wishing I had named it "top-down-scrolling-space-arcade-boss-battle"... would've probably gotten me more downloads than '''3:00''' XD
thanks for the review!

Hard Corpse!

Hehe nice wee tune here, I can imagine sitting in the room while you record this would rock quite a lot!

Maybe it was the final mixing or maybe it was original recording but the overall feel was a but muddy. You got a sweet sounding crunch when strumming the lower strings but it seemed to lack a high end a little bit, except for that cool pick scrape (or was it just some fast alternate picking?)!

However, these are just recording points, the actual song rocked! 5/5


DarKsidE555 responds:

Yeah, it's pretty muddy indeed and it pisses me off. Getting some new equipment the next time though...so maybe this problem will be solved then. ^^

And yes, it was just some fast alternate picking.

Thanks for checking it out man!

So Metal You Must Be Iron Man

Hey DarKsidE,

This tune kicks ass, I was enjoying the heavy speed picking, the notes sound very clear and distinct; did you practice this for a while or do you just kick bottom?

I do agree with speedmetalmessiah a bit with the drums not being a bit more present. It sounds to me like they have been compressed too much though and the rides and crashes come out more because of their higher freq.

But thats a minor issue, the guitar is some serious sexy right there. Good job man, I look forward to your next track as always!


DarKsidE555 responds:

I usually practice before hitting shit. It's easier to record then. Yeah, drums are always my problem...maybe not anymore pretty soon. hehe. :)

Thanks for review man! Keep in touch! ;)

A fantastic surprise.

Hey mate thanks for your review! This song is pretty awesome, I like how it instantly grabs your attention with the loud chord. The samples you use are all of very high quality and I like the automation you've used on the bass. You have obviously taken a lot of care in writing this. I enjoyed the vocal scratching in particular with the fat bass underneath. I would suggest doing something slightly different at the end, as it is now it builds up and builds up then just kind of peeters out to close. I would either end it slightly earlier in the song or maybe add some of those pad instruments from the quiet part in to add a more closing feel. But that is, as you say, a minor point :). Very well done man; I was pleasantly surprised.

Interesting and Subtle

Hey Awfullypretty,

Im really enjoying this song, I like how much of the song is just drums, vocals and piano. It stays simple and clean sounding and provides a nice contrast when the guitar kicks in.

One thing I would suggest is to change the pan values on the two different voices slightly. At the moment it sounds like voice 1 (the one that sings all of the words) is panned to the left and voice 2 (the one singing only some words to provide accent) is panned in the centre. I would suggest swapping the pan values so that voice 1 is centred and voice 2 is left. You could also add another accent vocal and pan it to the right.

Otherwise a nice relaxing song. Nice work, it deserves a 5 I think.

Awfullypretty responds:

Thanks dude....yeah i did all the vocals over but i left that up here jst for the flash makers to use im a big fan of the flashes, and im gonna make sure to check out ur stuff


...that sounds fucking sweet.

I really like the deep, heavy crunching rhythm this song has to it, its complement very well by the discordant lead guitar. I also thought the short sharp strokes on the lead added a nice percussive quality that offset the drums brilliantly.

Are those some pinch harmonics my poor metal-deprived ears hear? Sumptuous :D.

DarKsidE555 responds:

Sry for the late reply. ^^
Glad you enjoyed it. Yes, you heard right, there were pinch harmonics in it. I love playing those babys. The drums are by speedmetalmessiah and I have to say he did a pretty good job on it!!

Thanks for the review! :)

Cabbage Patch Bitches

I laughed out loud a wee bit at the intro, its great. Nice lead guitar as well, too bad its so short!

The drums in this were much less intrusive than in Chaos, I liked how the guitar shone through a bit more.

Youve certainly got some talent on the guitar man, I assume you play in a band(s)?


5 for ya (5 for chaos as well I forgot to say)

DarKsidE555 responds:

LoL, thanks man.

Yes, I play in one band. I played in a second one too but thats history. ;)

Yeah, I just got new samples on this tune and didn't spiced them up much as in chaos. None the less I think they fit pretty well that way. ^^

Thanks for the compliment, review and so on! ;)

That is all.
